I discovered late last night that "I Hate My Developer" is a finalist in the "Best Kept Secret Weblog" category for the 2010 Bloggies.
I almost plotzed myself.
I'm really honored that voters thought enough of what I write to offer it up to everyone else for their final consideration.
For those of you who are coming to my humble little concern by way of the Bloggie website, welcome.
Since there's no pressure to go through all of the 650+ posts (unless you really want to), if you scoot down the left sidebar you'll see a section labeled "Essential Posts" for your perusal.
'Cause from time to time people want to know how I came up with such a catchy name for the blog.
Nonetheless, lets get down to the important stuff.
Where's the swag?
It's awards season and we all know that with all of these ceremonies and the hoopla there's usually some type of free stuff from luxury purveyors.
They want high profile peeps to be seen in their stuff.
Yet for some reason I don't think that Rolex is clamoring to get the watches on the wrists of Bloggie finalists.
But wouldn't it be a better world if they did?
So in the absence of crazy swag, I'd appreciate your vote.
And the votes of your friends.
A Bloggie may not solve my unemployment issues or help me figure out how to keep my utilities on but it will reinforce that my writing for the past four years has been valued and appreciated.
Frankly speaking, I could use a little bit of both right about now.
